I just got a new operating system,Windows 7 ,and can't find anywhere in my profile here at BC to replace my information from my old system.
Where do I go to do this+how do I find the required informatoin?
Do I use the "get system info" link to copy+paste somewhere?

Thanks

Top right corner of the BleepingComputer header click on your name then select profile then in profile top right select edit profile and away you go.On your desktop click on the start button and type run in the search box , in the search results, select run and type DxDiag in the box and select OK, that will open your DirectX Diagnostic Tool save it to your desktop or a file, then you can select the info you need for your profile.Or check out this link Speccy is an advanced system information tool for your PC the latter might be more useful for future reference. Cheers

I just updated my system info. Not sure where to find the info on "storage" tho. Took that info from the Speccy download under the 'hard drives' column/entry.
Was that correct?
Thanks

Yes that was correct,but the info for your graphics card is probably for your optical drive other wise everything looks fine. Your graphics chip might be built into your motherboard if there not a separate card. :thumbsup:

Gee, I thought the optical drive was the correct one. Where might I "easily" find the graphics card info? :huh:

Okay now,I think I found the correct information--yippee! :thumbsup:
Thank you for your much needed help. I've saved both the Speccy info+the dxdiag info to my desktop for future reference.
Members like you make BC a good place to come to.
Thanks again!
